August 29, 2012
By
Chris Young

Tuesday night the Mets scored more runs (9) than they had in their previous five games (8). They pounded out 14 hits, including multi-hit games from five of their first six hitters in the lineup. They had two homers and came back from 4-1 and 5-4 deficits. They also received 5.2 scoreless innings from their bullpen. They beat the hated Phillies, bringing their record against Philadelphia to 9-4 for the season. This seemed like a…

Terry Collins

“man looks into the Abyss, and there’s nothing’ staring back at him. At that moment, man finds his character, and that’s what keeps him out of the Abyss… Lou Mannheim – “Wall Street” We’re all getting pretty sick and tired of all the one liners on Twitter about the Mets win-loss results post all-star game. No additional time needs to be spent here, but you know there will be plenty. Baseball, like all sporting events,…

#Mets #SellThisTeam

#Mets  #SellThisTeam

I’ve decided I want the Fred and Jeff Wilpon to sell the Mets. I’m at the end of my rope with these guys. Maybe 32 years is too long to hang onto something, just for the sake of hanging onto something. It’s almost as if they’re trying to prove a point: see? You can have an old-fashioned family ownership in this day-and-age. I get severely depressed whenever I think of Fred’s comment from a couple…

Mets Card of the Week: 1970 Tommie Agee

August 28, 2012
By
1970 Tommie Agee

1970 TOPPS TOMMIE AGEE The 1970 set is one of my favorite Topps sets. Yeah, I know, the gray borders are kind of bland. But the set was packed with good photos, the different color lettering of the various team names made it excellent for matching games and the yellow and blue backs are perhaps the finest Topps ever made. Tommie Agee generally did not have great cards as a member of the Mets. His…

Mets Minors: Prospect gems Zack Wheeler and Wilmer Flores shine brightly

August 27, 2012
By
Zack Wheeler

Zack Wheeler: I’ve written about Wheeler and you’ve read about Wheeler and by now, you are eagerly anticipating buying your very own Wheeler Met jersey some time during the 2013 or 2014 season.  First, before I get into talking about all the good things he’s doing, let me mention that he’s not YET ready for the majors.  He still has hit-or-miss days with control and the Mets will likely need to start him in AAA…

Jeremy Hefner provides nice value for a waiver claim

August 27, 2012
By
Jeremy Hefner

For a guy who was waived twice following the 2011 season, Jeremy Hefner has been quite a productive pitcher in 2012 for the Mets. Sunday, Hefner pitched into the ninth inning and ended up with a no-decision in a game where he pitched well enough to win. His final line was 8 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 1 BB and 7 Ks. The pessimists can claim that Hefner did that against the Astros, a team…

Mets fans should jump on the Darin Gorski bandwagon

August 26, 2012
By
Darin Gorski

Darin Gorski is quietly turning in a fine season in Double-A. You might recall that Gorski had a breakout year in 2011, where he went 11-3 with a 2.08 ERA. Many were skeptical because he was not highly touted and he dominated at an advanced age for his league. The conventional wisdom coming into this season was to see what Gorski did at Double-A before getting excited about him as a prospect. Last night on…
